Mango Magnifico is a never-before-released, high-gravity fruit beer brewed with mango and Michigan-grown habaneros. Each 750mL bottle of this 10% ABV ale is intended to be shared. Not a traditional fruit beer, the delicate tropical fruit in Mango Magnifico is punctuated by a hint of heat, increasing the overall depth of flavor and adding another level of complexity. It will be a refreshing drink for the warm summer months.

Bottle shared with Man Night. Aroma is mango syrup, light pepper, and peaches. Pours orange-peach with light carbonation and a small head. Taste is sweet fruit forward: apricot, mango, peach, with a noticable habenero bitterness behind it. Light citrus hop. Mouthfeel is oily and greasy sticky followed by a significant slow burn of spice. By the end of the glass, you know you’ve been burnt. Nice balance of sweet and spice. I was expecting this to be more harsh.

[5634-20130816] Bottle. Mango tropical fruit aroma. Clear, light copper body with a quick foamy off-white head. Spiced sweet mango fruit flavour. Medium body has quite a hot kick in the finish. Not my cuppa but interesting to try. (5/3/4/1/8) 2.1

Bottle. I just come across several ratings scratched on some paper and I realized they have not been entered. Trying to keep up with this crap. I really think if I ever find them all I will be well over 2000 ratings as I have been doing this shit since 2008. Oh well...what can you do? I guess enter all of it in as I go but back when I started the "smart phone" was pretty damn expensive and all of my ratings were entered on my desktop. So pen and paper when we did Natifest or I would text myself ratings and enter them after. Shit sucked in the early days, especially at beerfests. I mean, there are probably still scraps of paper under a seat in my truck or my wife’s car because of one too many samples, dropping my notes on the floor, and accidentally kicking them under the seat. So...that’s what I’ve got. This beer is mango salsa. I had one recently that has aged over a year, the heat is more mellow and the beer is more predominant.

Drake (8546) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2014
750 mL bottle from Whole Foods Charlottesville, opened 8/7/14. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of mango, chilis, canned tomatoes. The taste is similar, hot peppers, mango, caramel, canned tomatoes. Medium bodied, slight lingering heat, very disappoint for a Founders beer and disappointing for my 8400th rating.

Leveejr (102) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle received in trade. Pours a nice bright orange. Smells of sweet mango juice with a little pepper on the back. Taste is similar with a great pepper burn on back end. This is an awesome beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle... Pours mostly clear and yellow with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma furnishes malty notes of cotton candy and sugar cookie, accompanied by chili pepper spiciness. Full-bodied with tickling carbonation. Unfortunately, the flavor is sickeningly sweet. The habanero component is the best feature of the overly syrupy flavor and sweet, lightly tart finish. Leaves a warm, spicy smoothness behind.

Aroma of mango, taste is mango forward, lots of it, and a nice burn in the throat of habanero. Great tasting fruit beer!

Awesome. This was such a great beer. Starts with a sweet easy to drink mango ale that's full if character. Then it finishes off with a perfect amount of burn.

JStax (2980) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2014
750 ml bottle shared. Pours a clear gold with a white head of foam. The aroma was heavy on the peppers but there was still a bit of fruity character able to come through. The taste was spicy heat most of the way, but some sweetness was able to come through every once in awhile. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation.

Beerdedone (2618) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of big juicy mangos, peppers, fruit and other spices. Flavor was sweet & fruity mangos with hot peppers, caramel, honey and had a sweet and spicy finish.
